Nevada evened the series with a 77-68 win Wednesday night. Morehead was a dismal 1-16 (6.3%) from the three-point line in the game. The Eagles also managed just 13-24 free throws.
The series opened with an 86-83 Morehead win Monday night in Johnson Arena.
The first two games have become increasingly physical, culminating with MSU coach Sean Woods blowing by Nevada coach Eric Musselman in the handshake line Wednesday night.
I'm told that Musselman wasn't exactly "friendly" after Monday night's loss at Morehead.
One thing is for certain, tonight's championship game will be must-watch basketball.
